SOLAR PANELS AND CCTV
The remote nature of many security systems, coupled with the low power draw of some today's ultra-efficient cameras, makes CCTV an ideal application for solar or wind power.
Stand-alone solar powered CCTV technology means that the entire system can be installed without running power or data cables, both of which can be extremely costly over a wide area.
An additional benefit is the independence of the power supply. Even when the national grid goes down or there is a local power cut, a stand-alone solar powered CCTV system will continue to operate.
Complete Security can supply and install solar panels to meet your security systems requirements, along with the CCTV System of your choice.
How Solar Panels Work
The solar panels feed the power thats been converted from the sunlight falling on to them into the regulator unit. The regulator unit charges the system batteries and provides the regulated power output for your equipment at the same time while sun light is falling on the panel. As the sunlight fails the system continues to run on these batteries which are then recharged again when the solar panels come back into operation when sun light is restored.
The portable Solar power unit has built in rechargeable batteries and you can also connect an extra external battery too if you need the extra capacity on a particular site.
